This is what true innovation looks like. From its 3.5L EcoBoost® technology to its ultraefficient aerodynamics, the Ford GT is the culmination of everything great we do at Ford. And it's the same passion for innovation that can be seen throughout our entire vehicle lineup.
The rear wing is built into the overall aerodynamic design of the fuselage, so it enhances airflow even when not deployed. When deployed, it can even change shape to optimize airflow and squeeze out just that extra bit of performance.
A great example of the engineering ingenuity that went into the Ford GT, the buttresses add strength to the chassis and guide airflow over the car while contributing to drag reduction and efficient airflow management. They also reduce the coefficient of drag and contribute to the downforce that optimizes handling and performance.
Its ride height can be lowered approximately 50mm, improving its aerodynamics and lowering its center of gravity for optimal performance on the track.
The lightweight body is made of carbon fiber. Aluminum structures minimize the weight of the high-strength subframes.
To help optimum overall performance, Brembo™ carbon-ceramic brakes have been engineered into the Ford GT.
You've Never Seen Anything Like This Before. Innovation. That's what the Ford GT is all about. From its aerodynamically optimized shape to its multifunctional buttresses to its extraordinarily powerful 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine, everything about the Ford GT is designed to deliver pure performance.
Whether on the road or on the track, every single element of the Ford GT was designed to deliver the extraordinary speed and exceptional handling found only in purpose-built racing cars.
This Ford GT is the ultimate expression of form following function. Its teardrop-shape body is the result of extensive work in the wind tunnel. Its carbon-fiber body and its 647 horsepower 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine are the ultimate expressions of technological innovation.
Long suspension arms and inboard damper packaging deliver track-capable vehicle dynamics - an example of Ford Performance engineers exploring suspension design for future Ford Performance vehicles.
In addition to being another iconic design element, the exhaust is incorporated into the midsection of the bodywork to maximize diffuser performance at the bottom and to maintain airflow over the top of the body.
The air inlets just ahead of the rear wheels feed cooling air to the intercoolers, and also act as inlets for engine air intake.
Twin-turbocharged, intercooled EcoBoost® 3.5-liter V6 with 647 horsepower.
The Very Definition of Aerodynamic: Its aerodynamically optimal teardrop shape minimizes drag and maximizes downforce.
